It is a strange feeling holding a trufffle in your hands and to scent its amazing aroma. What is it that the truffle wants to tell us?
The passion for truffles of our familiy has been initiated by the ties of friendship to truffle-hunters in the native country of Véronique Knapp-Bret in southern France.
Driven by the enthusiasm for this strange fungus a small local business rised which developed to become a super-regional one since the business-registration the 18th December 1982.
We select truffles an buy them from our truffles hunters around europe exclusively in their natural environment - their soil. And we keep them in their environment, as it provides the ideal storage conditions.
Each single truffle is beeing controlled by a family member, brushed dry and selected for each customer specifically. With the experience of many years, we have learnt to distinguish bad from good truffles through the sense of vision, the sense of smell and the sense of touch.
Even the delivery or distribution is beeing done by a family member. This is our commitment to our customers.
The preserved truffles are produced by us according to a recipe from truffle hunters in a gentle manner without antidegredant. Products from other manufacturer are only sold by us, if we are convinced from the quality of the products and the services provided.
Our passion for truffles hasn't changed and is still the focus of our philosophy. We would like to share all our knowledge about truffles with you. On this site, during phone calls, seminars, cookery courses and excursions.
